View Full Version : The Blast Dragons - An ABR Story Webcomic

2008-02-24, 04:05 PM
Ok so here's my attempt to making an ABR story comic, set in Avbaroy. I will update it every Saturday, Sunday, and Wednesday. The story is about Jason Doomsblade's (my ABR character) ancestor, and a band of mercenaries that he belonged to during the Age of Dragons.

Comics 1-10

Reminds me of when my brothe didn't want any more school projects in the last two weeks before winter break. We got three that day.

2008-02-24, 04:41 PM
It's a good start :smallsmile:

Yeah, I like your art style.

Too bad popcorn man isn't continuing.

2008-02-25, 08:02 PM
Alright! Character Bio's!


I hope I didn't controdict anything from Remember.

2008-02-26, 09:05 AM
Well, you haven't contradicted Remember, but I think in ABR canon the Age of Dragons ended 500 years ago. It lasted 129 years. So the longest Jordan's legacy could last to Jason would be about 600 years.

2008-02-26, 10:21 AM
Whoops I guess I miscalculated on the timeline. My bad. 600 years then.

Huh. No one commented.:smallfrown:

It's good, I just don't like how Lawrence's axe is the same colour as the wall.

2008-02-27, 08:47 PM
I was going to comment, but I usually wait for someone else to comment first.

2008-06-16, 05:39 PM
I've learned that I really suck when it comes to the webcomic buisness. :smallannoyed: But when I was at my cottage I had nothing to do but screw around on Inkscape, so I made 3 more of these.

It's funny; I actually have this entire story made up in my head, but I lack any sort of motivation to draw it up. :smallannoyed: I'll probably find myself making more of these when I have nothing else to do.

2008-06-16, 06:10 PM
If it's any consolation, Photobucket seems to have as much love for your comic as you have motivation to make it :smalltongue:

Good to see it back though, I especially like the "I think it's breeding" lines :smallbiggrin:

2008-06-16, 08:22 PM
Tell me about it. I tried on 3 seperate occasions to resize the comics, and they all end up the exact freakin way. :smallannoyed: Photobucket hates me, and everything I hold dear. :annoyed:

2008-06-17, 05:21 AM
I recommend trying Imageshack

2008-06-17, 08:22 PM
Praise Imageshack and to hell with Photobucket! The comics are sized properly!

Big blue whooshes are always good

2008-06-22, 09:43 PM
now if only you made a backstory to your actual character lol. :smallbiggrin:

I like it

2008-06-23, 02:39 PM
To answer Doomer's question:

1: No one has done an ancestry webcomic yet, so I thought it would be a cool idea.

2: I actually have a handwritten backstory comic about Jason Doomsblade on my Facebook page. It's called 'I can't Believe its not OoTS.' (Lol Just kidding :smallbiggrin:)

And finally: Comic Seven. (http://img73.imageshack.us/my.php?image=comic7xx7.png)

Strange, I thought the elemental did that :smallamused:

"Hey, who turned out the lights!"

2008-06-23, 04:42 PM
I'm liking it.

I do actually have issue with the comics only being linked to in the thread and not actually posted on it if you know what I mean, especially when you're linking to Pop-upshack Imageshack.

But I guess I'm just being picky.

Well, two answers to that.

Posting comics on the main thread severly increases the time it takes to load the page.

And I'm linking to Imageshack because Photobucket was being gay and resizing the comics to unreadable sizes.

2008-06-23, 10:02 PM
New comic!


Posting comics increase length of time to load? Thought it was the other way around...

And as for photobucket, what's the max image size you're using, dimensions or the 1MB option?

2008-06-26, 11:30 AM
Comic Eight. (http://img232.imageshack.us/my.php?image=psa1jk2.png) Something that I think needs to be addressed.

2008-06-26, 11:46 AM
Yeah, Naruto, often considered undiluted awesome, definitely has equally terrible flaws.

2008-06-26, 12:14 PM
Well, that was unexpected.


2008-06-29, 02:10 PM
I won't be able to post anything this week, because I am at my cottage, working with dial up :smallannoyed:, and its all I can do to post this. I'll have 3 new ones up by next Monday.

2008-06-29, 02:56 PM
Will be interessting to read this. I'll just point out that comic 3 equals comic 6 in the archives. :)

2008-06-29, 03:21 PM
Why are you in a cottage/why does your cottage have dial-up?

Oh well, Monday presents! :smallbiggrin:

2008-06-30, 06:01 PM
Came home a bit earlier than expected, cuz of the crappy weather.

@Lying: I was at my cottage because my family goes there every weekend, only this week my parents are on vaction so we were supposed to stay the whole week. But we didnt cuz of aforementioned bad weather. My dad got dial up there so he can do some work, while there.

@Elder Tsofu: Fixed Archive

Ah yes, the Law of Spontaneous Narratorial Creation :smallbiggrin:

2008-07-03, 12:20 PM
Comic Ten. I've learned something about myself over the past few days. I really suck at making sound effects.


2008-07-04, 03:47 PM
I added 4 more squares to comic 10, cuz they would look better there than at the beginning of comic 11.

Opening up the your comics make my computer crash for some reason. :smalltongue:

2008-07-04, 03:51 PM
Well that's discouraging. :smallfrown:

2008-07-04, 03:57 PM
Still looks good though, apparently evil fire is contagious :smalltongue:

2008-07-04, 03:59 PM
Well that's discouraging. :smallfrown:

Don't worry, the comic seems to be doing fine.

I think my computer just hates Imageshack for some reason...

Comic 11 (http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd224/JasonDoomsblade/Comic11.png)

And if anyone cares or not, I've made a little summary of how elementals work in the world of ..... me. :smalltongue::smallbiggrin::smallsmile:

In the world of me, there are 8 types of elementals; Fire, Ice, Lightning, Water, Wind, Earth, Darkness, and Light. The original or very first elementals live within magical crystals (as shown in Comic 4). These originals create offspring whenever they are summoned. These newborns will then begin to evolve into new elementals of their type. Should the original die the offspring cannot thrive in our world and must possess a host of some kind (shown in Comic 10), to survive.

2008-07-08, 08:51 AM
I can certainly sympathise with Lawrence, I keep sleeping in massively lately, lucky for me I have July off...

2008-07-20, 03:16 PM
Hooray to the forums being alive again!

I made you a wiki page (http://abr.wetpaint.com/page/The+Blast+Dragons)!

Thanks. I guess I should really be making a comic at some point.

Comic 13 (http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd224/JasonDoomsblade/Comic13.png)

I'm sure you people were expecting more after such a long wait, and I apologize. BUT! I found my motivation. It was hiding in British Columbia. :smalltongue:

2008-08-31, 03:38 PM
Here's another one for today.

So many things about the most recent comic made me laugh out loud. Two thumbs up!

2008-09-19, 05:05 PM
Again I apologise for the wait, and I'm gonna have to ask you to wait a bit longer. As you may or may not know, my computer suffered a crash; thus losing all the data I had on my harddrive. I have recently completed redoing all my lost templates for ABR and the Blast Dragons. I expect to have a comic up before the deadline of the Back to School Secret Santa thing. To hold you till then, here's a most excellent drawing done by Vulion.


2008-09-22, 12:24 PM
Comic 15 (http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd224/JasonDoomsblade/Comic15.png) as promised.

There is a gap between it and comic 14, but I really wanted to get this joke out of my head.

2008-09-22, 02:23 PM
Oh my god! Triple post! :smalltongue:

Just posting up these righteous pieces of work from Tired N Drowsy.

2008-09-26, 07:05 PM
Comic 16 (http://i221.photobucket.com/albums/dd224/JasonDoomsblade/Comic16.png). Enjoy the shortness.

2008-09-26, 08:00 PM
The one bonus to WoW in that respect is that corpse humping is liable to draw fire from any nearby allies.

Most of the time.

2008-09-26, 09:26 PM
Oh my god! Triple post! :smalltongue:
Make that quadrouple.

Nice on 16. It's sad because it's true.

2009-04-10, 11:03 PM
Looks good. I hope this comic dosn't get abondened the comic after I start reading(like all the others).
